Vintage Hand-Me-Down Bags

5:40 AM

Hand-me-down items are my favourite. I believe that there's nothing better than some style steals from my mom's 90s wardrobe. She had pretty good style that I try to channel into my everyday outfits. Recently, she lended me two bags from when she was in her early 20s.

The first one is this vintage Elle envelope bag I immediately went gaga for. It's a light gray with a brown leather front pocket and could be both a cross body or a shoulder bag. Oddly, the stripe detail  on its strap reminds me so much of hippies on cruiser boards. What I like about it most is that it goes super well with loafers and black culottes. Sadly, I could no longer find this in the internet.

The second one is this warm red/orange handbag from United Colors of Benetton. I'm not a massive fan of short straps, but this one I love due to its slightly-tugged wool fabric. I think it's a fashion forward statement, which is again, suitable for my love for anything with a 60s vibe.

What's your favourite hand-me-down?
